Hotel Ipanema

Just minutes from Taormina's beach


All 55 rooms have a side seaview and balcony and are furnished simply yet with old fashioned charm.  Facilities include a bath or shower, safe, hairdryer, air-conditioning (June to September), mini-bar and satellite TV. Wi-fi is available free of charge in the reception area.


The Ipanema has a lovely warm and friendly ambience, with “olde worlde” comfort, a cosy and welcoming bar and a small outside terrace with tables and chairs. The owner, Sig. Bruno, is justifiably proud of the hotel’s delicious home cooked fare served up in the welcoming restaurant, where once a week (normally Friday) guests can enjoy Sicilian folklore music and an extensive buffet meal.

The Ipanema’s “piece de la resistance” however, has to be the hotel’s rooftop sun terrace with its lovely outdoor pool and magnificent views over the bay of Mazzaro. Close by and at a small supplement (€10 per person) guests can take advantage of the hotel’s own private beach club, with use of umbrellas, sunbeds, tennis and five-a-side football and a shuttle service (May to Sept).

This popular hotel is ideal for couples and families looking for a relaxing beach holiday on a half board basis, with easy access for exploring both Taormina and other attractions in North East Sicily, such as the Aeolian Islands, Mount Etna and the Val D’Agro, where many of the “Godfather” scenes were filmed. Your Sicily holiday awaits!
